"Sprawling shrub to c. 1 m high, sometimes prostrate." (WorldWideWattle, ver.2)

Inflorecences are globular and golden coloured. Pods are curled or twisted, to 7cm long and 5mm wide. Seeds to 3mm in length.


"Grows in Eucalyptus forest or mallee communities, in stony skeletal soils, in undulating ridge country or on the footslopes of mountain ranges." (WorldWideWattle, ver.2) In South East Qld we often encounter A.amblygona as a low growing understory wattle in Corymbia citriodora dominated forests. It may form dense thickets after fire breaks the dormancy of seed stored within the soil.
